Good catch there pj. I didn't even notice that when copying the quote.

I'll leave it there though, so that our conversation below that post will make sense. 

in·dig·na·tion/ˌindiɡˈnāSH(ə)n/ Learn to pronouncenounnoun: indignation

  1. anger or annoyance provoked by what is perceived as unfair treatment.
    "the letter filled Lucy with indignation"

Obviously, indignation is not something desirable!
